MLB Renaming ‘Disabled List’ Because It Might Be Offensive
After 104 years, Major League Baseball will do away with the “Disable List” in order to please the politically correct mob.
“Major League Baseball will rename the disabled list as the ‘injured list,’ a source familiar with the plan told ESPN,” according to a Thursday report.
“The league will make the change out of concern that the term ‘disabled’ for injured players falsely conflates disabilities with injuries and an inability to participate in sports,” the report continued.
The term “disabled list” has been used since it was established by the National League in 1915.
Soon enough, the “National League” will find itself in hot water for excluding international baseball viewers and players, and will likely have to change its name too.
According to the report, the rules for the “injured list” will remain the same as the rules for the now-defunct and anti-PC disabled list. There is currently a 10-day “injured list” for players with minor injuries, and a 60-day “injured list” for players with more serious injuries.
